CS5 would be my choice on a road car, but being a bit 'tight' and destroying tyres, I went to Falkens

Thanks GUys, I will try protyres. Had Conti SP5 and very happy. But it seems you only get about 12k (same as RFT) so might just try the falkens, if I am going to have to replace every year.

Agree - protyre are very good - and also do 4 wheel laser alignment

Otherwise I'd also try Brittania Tyres in fishponds

Or indeed talk to Kelv at FCM - IIRC he is ex Protyre.
FCM Motorsport do a lot for the Evo lads, and local clubs.
Very cheap for geometry work.

Garage List
Always found Pro Tyre excellent.. Always get my bike tyres there

Also try Projex Design formaly South West Tyres Clevedon. They always seem to offer a good 'deal'

a mate tried blackcircles and then rang Brunel Tyres direct (think Ikea way, there or there about), and gave better prices when ordering direct. Another friend had mentioned them before too.

Might just as well go for the falkens if the conti sport only getting 12k......what put me off was that toxincurve recently put some falkens on, but his initial thread didn't seem that impressed.....

Thanks for all the advice. I wonder why toxincurve was not happy, most people seem pleased with the falkens.
